Roseanna M. White is a bestselling, Christy Award nominated author who has long claimed that words are the air she breathes. When not writing fiction, she’s homeschooling her two kids, editing, designing book covers, and pretending her house will clean itself. Roseanna is the author of a slew of historical novels that span several continents and thousands of years. Spies and war and mayhem always seem to find their way into her books…to offset her real life, which is blessedly ordinary. She and her family make their home in the beautiful mountains of West Virginia. You can learn more about her and her stories at www.RoseannaMWhite.com.

My inspiration at the time was a combination of fairy tales and Lori Wick's Kensington Chronicles. =) I've rewritten that story approximately a gazillion times and am soooooo excited that it's finally being published! It is barely recognizable from that first draft, but the heart of the story is still the same, and I'm thrilled to welcome Brook and Justin into the world!(less)

Then, if inspiration doesn't come naturally, I force myself to sit down and get back to work. If I have the time, I'll reread what I've written thus far. Sometimes it's a matter of the last bit I wrote just being wrong. If I delete a few pages and go a different direction, the problem might resolve itself. But sometimes it's a simple matter of making myself write whether I want to or not. Telling myself I'm not allowed to do anything else until I finish this chapter of meet my target word count. When inspiration fails, pure determination usually fills in the gaps. =) I might have to edit those sections extensively later, but just getting through them in all that matters on a first draft!(less)

We've been reading through Matthew lately, and really digging deep, as we tend to do in our Bible studies. This weekend, we were in Matthew 14--quite a chapter! We learn about the beheading of John, and how Jesus sought some solitude after getting the news, He tried to go off by Himself...only to be followed by quite a crowd that He ended up feeding. After that miraculous meal, He sends the di... Read more of this blog post »
